portion of the program will be moderated by a professor geoffrey hazard, a distinguished professor of law at uc hastings. the professor is a leading expert in the field of civil procedure of legal ethics and is good at asking questions. it is my pleasure to introduce our very special guest, stephen zack, president of the american bar association. with nearly 400,000 members, it is the largest volunteer professional membership organization in the world. mr. zack is the first hispanic american to serve as the president and the second to be born abroad. he was only 14 when his family emigrated from cuba under harrowing circumstances, including last minute detention by the secret police. he made it here. in two lines -- and two lines come to mind when i think of him. "this is my country, land of my choice. this is my country, here i found voice." what a voice it is. he earned his aba at the university of florida and he is now in their hall of fame. he is a partner in the miami office of the national law firm. his clients range from former vice president al gore to philip morris, to the nation
for that process. i have introduced with having law enforcement agencies to enforce restricting gun trafficking. others want to ban ammunition clips and others have proposed modifications to the background check system to keep guns out of the wrong hands while not unnecessarily burdening law- abiding citizens. i am a lifelong vermonter. i know gun store owners in vermont. they follow the law. they conduct background checks to prevent getting guns to those who should not have them. they wonder why others who sell guns to not have to follow the same protective rules. i agree with these responsible business owners. if we could all agree that criminals and those adjudicated mentally ill should not buy firearms, why should we not try to plug the loopholes in the law that allows them to buy guns without background checks? it is a simple matter of common sense. if we agree the background check system is worth while, shouldn't we try to improve its content and use it so it can be more effective? what responsible gun owner objects to improving the background check system? when i bought firearms in vermo
developments. we expect to hear confirmation from authorities in 5 to 10 minutes. we are hearing from a law enforcement official telling fox that the boy, the 5-year-old boy who has been held in the under ground bunker in the area you see behind me coming up on 7 days, that he has been released and that he is, quote, okay. the same law enforcement official also saying that the suspect, 65-year-old jimmy lee dykes who had been -- allegedly holding this boy in his backyard bunker all this time, that the suspect in the case is dead. kimberly, all of this began last tuesday afternoon. the boy was riding home on a school bus in this neighborhood, in this area where i am when a gunman boarded the bus, the bus driver positioned himself between the gunman and the children. the gunman opened fire fatally wounding mr. poland and one of the children was taken hostage. that child being that 5-year-old brought to a backyard bunker in the backyard of this suspect jimmy lee dykes, a 65-year-old who neighbors describe as very territorial someone who would become violent if neighbors or even a dog would ven
up in three weeks in toronto at our annual meeting. it tells people going to law school exactly what they are in for and you need to understand that the accreditation part of the american bar association is under a completely separate organization as a result of an agreement we have with the department of justice and department of education, so that we don't have any antitrust issues. that is an independent group. we at the american bar association are asking law schools to prepare for -- prepare 10 simple questions about what it costs to go to law school, how many of their students are employed upon graduation in real jobs, not artificial jobs, and we think it is going to be helpful. we also have a website that has a lot of information for anyone considering to go to law school, but probably the most important statistic that these potential students don't know is that the median income of lawyers in the united states is $62,000. they need to understand that before they incur $100,000 in debt. is there always room for another good lawyer? we need good lawyers. there always is. you ha
against you. against the government. how do you conduct your business in enforcing the law, not knowing what is behind that door? >> i find it to be very scary, creepy, simply just not based on logic. certainly, law enforcement across the nation is well prepared to deal with any natural or man-made disaster that would occur. frankly, -- i cannot relate to that kind of thinking. >> i cannot be there. and i cannot think about the need of that man in colorado having 100 cartridges. professor koppel, do you think that is necessary for hunting, sports, target practice, even self defense? >> it would be not legal for hunting in most states where there are limits on how many rounds you can have in a magazine. as i think you have recognized, the second amendment is not primarily about hunting. what i have been talking about is what the supreme court said in the district of columbia versus heller, which is the second amendment, the firearms and their accessories which are commonly owned by law-abiding people for legitimate purposes. i am talking about what police officers carry, what citizens ca
do not intend to, but i would be better off protecting my family if there was law-and-order breakdown in my neighborhood. i do not think that makes me an unreasonable person. mr. trotter when you say you speak on behalf of millions of women out there who believe an ar-15 makes them safer, there were a lot of giggles in the room, and that explains the dilemma. the people who were giggling were saying to you, that is crazy. nobody i know thinks that way. which reminds me of the harvard professor who said i cannot believe mcgovern lost. everyone i knew voted for him. i bet there are people on our side that cannot believe obama won because everyone they know voted against him. the point is, we have different perspectives on this. the reason i will oppose the legislation, chief johnston, is because i respect what you do as a law-enforcement officer. has your budget been cut? >> yes. >> will it be cut in the future? >> i am optimistic that it is not. >> because of the fiscal state of affairs we have, there will be less police officers, not more, over the next decade. response time will be m

>>> president obama urges seizing this moment to overhaul our nation's immigration laws. >> now is the time to find a better way to welcome the striving, hopeful immigrants who still see america as the land of opportunity. >> what does this mean for california? from the central valley to silicon valley? >>> and san francisco implements a controversial law. it enables court-ordered treatment for mentally ill patients at risk of becoming violent. >> these folks are a danger to themselves and to others. >>> plus, the 49ers gear up for the super bowl. a report from new orleans. coming up next. >>> good evening. i'm viviana ritado. welcome to "this week in northern california." what happens or doesn't happen in washington on immigration this year will have a big impact here in california. president obama pressed congress to pass within the next six months comprehensive immigration reform. he addressed this issue in las vegas on tuesday. >> if congress is unable to move forward in a timely fashion, i will send up a bill based on my proposal and insist that they vote on it right away.
be taken in burglaries. >> those bordering states and those are the laws in nevada. >> until last tuesday, california had the strongest gun laws in the united states, arizona the weakest and we are next door >> so someone could go to a gun show across the board and board and border and do that weapon. >> i just have a question regarding the last firearm. on the pictures that we have here, there is rifles, semi, automatic and then there is the assault weapon. the magazine clip, on the semiautomatic, does that change the rifle into a it. >> if you take that banana magazine away that comes under the semiautomatic rifle. >> yes. >> once you put that banana magazine on you it falls down on a fully or modified? >> it would be an assault weapon, semi, auto assault weapon >> another category. >> we can spend a whole day talking about the different ways or the different types of assault weapons that there are. here is another as we speak, it is an assault pistol, which is a mack ten and a 45 caliber and this one is shoot very quickly and accept the magazines up to 30 rounds and the whole magazine
are lawful immigrants. so any way you cut it, it's going to have a huge impact. some of the -- and there's a lot in here for everyone. employers, students who came here at a young age. they're called dreamers. agricultural workers. some of the things that people may not be aware of, in the president's proposal, lgbt families will be able to sponsor their family members. >> and that's from the president's proposal but not in the so-called gang of eight. >> it's not in the gang of eight proposal. but i think one of other issues for californians to, in terms of watching this debate and participating in it, is to understand what the road blocks are. because it's not just smooth sailing. there's a lot of concern about high fines for low-income immigrants. the requirements such as civics and english. even before you can get a green card. those are requirements we have for people who can become citizens. not for getting a green card. and the biggest thing is getting in the back of the line, because our legal immigration system is to backlogged. right now people who've sponsored someone, a sibli
traveled safely with hunters and school officials, with law enforcement officers, with mental health experts. i have convened roundtable discussions and i have had many, many conversations. i have learned is that there is a balance to be struck here. we can honor the second man and -- the second amendment and we can honor the menace of a -- the minnesota culture of responsible gun ownership while taking basic measures that will make our kids and our communities safer. so i have co-sponsored a bill to limit the number of rounds and magazine. i co-sponsored a bill to require background checks at gun shows. i have co-sponsored senator feinstein's bill to ban assault weapons. i am reviewing legislation to address gun trafficking. i have supported funding for law enforcement programs and i work every day to carry out the work pauol wallstone does to repair our mental health system. tomorrow i will introduce the mental health and school act which will improve access to mental health care for kids. catching these issues at an early age is really important. i want to be careful here -- illne
now. >> monica says without leadership, this money mess is getting worse. >> well, who needs the law. the law dictates that the president is supposed to submit a budget by a certain date, today, and fourth year in a row no budget. >> let's roll this out of neil. this is neil just five months ago. can we play that? take a listen. >> it does seem a bestbit ironic that we have, according to the united states treasurery, eclipsed a $16 trillion debt level collectively what we owe as nation now going over $16 trillion. >> that was five months ago. five months ago we spent 500 billion -- half a trillion dollars. >> it's amazing. this president has committed budgets over the last couple of years but each one has been so obscene that he can't even get a single democrat to vote for his budget. so, whatever he proposed -- we talk about today's legal deadline. whatever he proposes is going to be so ludicrous that even members of his own party won't go along with it. every president since the end of world war ii of both parties has usually kept federal spending as a percentage of gdp between 18
prem at mukherjee -- pranab mukherjee signed a new law. i realize there are lots of reporting restrictions. what do we actually know about the events in court today? >> as you mentioned, only one witness took the stand. he was the key prosecution witness, the male friend of the young woman who was gang raped and then murdered last december. he was brought here in a wheelchair. he, too, received injuries during that attack, allegedly at the hands of the five men charged in woman's murder and gang rape. also at the court, apart from the five men, the bus where the attack took place was driven into the complex. the entire day was taken up with the prosecution prove -- presenting their key witness. the court will convene tomorrow morning. the defense will get their chance to cross-examine this witness. he is the first of about 80 witnesses the prosecution is expected to field, including police officers, forensic experts, and doctors, who did their best to try to save the young woman's life. >> this whole case takes place against a backdrop in which the government, if you like, is
company -- >> the rule of law isn't really the rule of law if it doesn't apply equally to everybody. i mean, if you're going to put somebody in jail for having a joint is his pocket, you can't let higher ranking hsbc officials off for laundering $800 million for the worst drug dealers in the entire world. >> and -- >> there is not a country in the world that believes that the u.s. drone attacks that we are doing on countries that we are not at war with is the right and sustainable solution for us. >> all we have is the president interpreting his own powers and the limits on his own powers. and that is not the way it's supposed to work. we need more oversight. >> announcer: funding is provided by -- carnegie corporation of new york, celebrating 100 years of philanthropy, and committed to doing real and permanent good in the world. the kohlberg foundation. independent production fund, with support from the partridge foundation, a john and polly guth charitable fund. the clements foundation. park foundation, dedicated to heightening public awareness of critical issues. the herb alpert
authority. he can make changes, not laws. he cannot change laws, but he can change things that the administration is responsible for itself. for big changes, though, for real reform, the president needs congress to pass new laws, and that's where the real political heavy lifting comes in. to do that political heavy lifting, the white house announced a new political strategy, or at least a new political tactic to try to get this done. the 2012 obama/biden reelection campaign would morph itself into an advocacy group, a powerful democratic grassroots activism machine. the old campaign would transfer to this new group its vast database of information about obama supporters, about voters. and then the new group would mobilize supporters to mobilize the president's agenda now, the same way they supported him all the way into the white house last year. this new group, organizing for action, is a new phenomenon in politics. this has not been done before. and a group like this could be a fearsome and unique tool if it works in politics the way its organizers expect it to work. we
, a democrat, and chuck grassley of iowa, a republican, are outraged that the giant banks violate the law with impunity -- laundering money, cheating homeowners, falsifying information -- every trick in the ledger book. they sent a letter to attorney general eric holder demanding to know why the banks get away with fines instead of jail time. maybe they had their anger roiled by "frontline," public television's premier investigative series. the other night, "frontline" broadcast a report called "the untouchables," on how the department of justice allegedly has looked the other way for fear that prosecuting the banks would do even more damage to the american economy. >> it was a definite sense that justice backed off. >> did the government fail? >> a number of people told us that you didn't make this a top priority. >> well, i'm sorry that they think that because i made it an incredibly top priority. >> that's lanny breuer, the assistant attorney general in charge of the criminal division at the justice department. a week after the frontline report, he stepped down and is now expected to r
for the question period, mariono florentino professor at stanford university law school and co- director at stanford center for international security and cooperation. from early 2009 through the summer of 2010, he served as special assistant to the president for justice and regulatory policy at the white house. now, we are going to pause just for a moment while we begin -- before beginning our radio, tv, and internet programs for a much wider audience. good afternoon and welcome to today's meeting of the commonwealth club of california, the place where you are in the know. you can find us on the internet at commonwealthclub that board -- commonwealthclub.org. now it is my distinct honor and also a personal pleasure for me to introduce robert s. muller, the sixth director of the federal bureau of investigation. nominated by president george w. bush, he was sworn in to lead the fbi on september 4, 2001, just one week before the al qaeda attacks on 9/11. under his leadership, the fbi has since played the leading role in preventing further terrorist attacks inside america. all americans sho
enforcement, and sadly, particularly in west africa, in helping african law enforcement address a growing narcotics problem, illegal narcotics problem, coming mostly from central and south america into force in west africa. in the gulf of guinea, i would highlight a notable program, the first that anyone is aware of of a truly effective partnership, not between two african countries but between two of the african unions, regional economic teams. so the gulf of guinea as you all know rests on the boundary between the economic community of west african states and the economic community of central african states. and through a number of workshops as mentioned, mostly legalistic manners but to help those to regional organizations craft sharing arrangements that have allowed for the nations to share law enforcement information, to allow for pursuit of, a hot pursuit of criminals across the borders, whether that's illegal a sherry, whether oil bunkering or other illegal activities. so still a lot of work to do in the domain of maritime security, but progress is being made. the challenge, of cou
there are different needs in different communities? and i think perhaps the law enforcement folks feel the cultures in the communities and see that come out in the adults. i would like to hear about how do you affect a culture and even in san francisco we have many cultures affecting what is valued, what is criticized. >> you know i think that richard touched upon this. it's a relationship of power and it's clearly going to differ from community to community; right. when i was telling you i was picked because because i didn't speak english or at all initially there were only about 5% of us that were hispanic in the school and wouldn't be the case if 95% are hispanic and english speaking as a second language, but i think the way that we can deal with the issue is we ought to first of all start with the notion of respect for others, and respect for others can work across the line. it doesn't necessarily mean -- it doesn'tly has to deal with the culture. is how we treat one another? and i think we have to be very clear in our educational process and the communication to our people and what is accep
pressure on law makers. tom joins us now. this trip expected to be the first of many. >> the administration's goal is to build on what it sees as momentum following last week's hearing on gun control. supporters of the president's plan say time is important. they want to hold on to the public's attention. gun rights advocates say is they saw a rush to pass new gun laws in their view has eased. >> president obama led a round table in an effort to rewrite gun laws. >> which don't have to agree on everything to agree it's time to do something. >> that something includes 23 gun control proposals the president endorsed after the school shooting. limiting ammunition clips and expanding background checks. >> we're not going to save every life but we can make a difference. and that's our responsibility as americans. >> but the head of the nra says instead of limiting gun use by people who follow the law, shouldwork to end laws that allow mentally unstable people to buy guns. >> they won't do it. the hppa laws won't do it. we're all for it. but it's not. >> over the weekend is a lead up to the presi
, a legalization program, all of those things were actually done, written into the law in 1986 and i looked back and looked at the signing ceremony where president reagan declareed that future generations of americans will be faithful for our efforts to humanely regain control of our boarders. that law -- borders. that law, the last immigration reform that this country attempted actually left the country the exact same problems it had then, only worse. back then there are three million to five million illegal immigrants. now there are 1 1. rather than settling this question of who gets to be an american, it's now more enflamed than it has been in memory and it's in part because of that law and its failures that i think we are where we are today. >> as i understand it, the decree teak of the 1986 law is in part because it amounted to an amnesty and that turned to -- out to be a magnet for more immigrants so how does the kind of law that's being talked about now escape the problem of being branded as amnesty? >> the problem with that law -- ronald reagan was actually willing to use the word "amnes
ability to say, did you actually choose that and did you choose it in a way that the law would recognize. so the law all of the time develops concepts that scientists are interested in studying. it might be competency, for example. well, competency is really a multifaceted construct from a legal perspective. it could be competency to be executed, it could be competency to commit a crime. it could be competency to contribute to the decision as to whether voluntarily commit yourself to a mental hospital. it could be competency to participate in an abortion decision. so competency means many different things. the first thing you have to do as a scientist is ask the question, well, what does the law mean by it because if you want me to measure it, i have to somehow apply it. so going back to the question of free will, because a scientist can't operationally define it, they can't measure it, they're not really that much use to legal debates about free will. now, what does it mean on the legal side? i actually think the idea of free will or what is often referred to as volitional control plays
and give you a brief look into the future of the gun laws in our state. captain? >> >> we had a quick question. >> i can wait, until the end. >> okay, great. >> thank you. >> so, what the future holds for us? >> some of these things are technology, and some of these things are executive action and some of these things are legislation, the technology is in california, there is a law that says, that all guns manufactured in the state of california have to engage in microstamping, that is a method in which the gun itself leaves a mark on the casing from which the bullet is fired. it is the hammer that strikes the primer and the chamber that the bullets is in when it leaves the gun. it is not enacted at the moment, it is a law, it has to do with the patent and with the technology and so some people will argue about the pros and cons of that. but it just would create evidence that would assist in identifying what gunfired, what round. it would also apply to revolvers. as far as present obama's proposals, he made them this month. some are executive actions and some he is calling for legisla
